In addition to the energy management of individual buildings, we are advancing the Sustainable Smart Town project to provide a better lifestyle throughout the entire town.
Following the projects in Fujisawa and Tsunashima, as the third project, we formulated a concept for Suita Sustainable Smart Town in September 2019. Based on the concept, we are working on the town planning with 15 companies from different fields. As our activities in energy field, throughout this project, we aim to create Japan's first '100% renewable energy town', where the net power used in the town is supplied from renewable energy source; and we plan to increase the town's energy resilience at the same time by utilizing storage batteries for houses and electric vehicles, and advanced gas equipment. In March 2021, the project acquired S ranking, the highest certification for cities under CASBEE, the assessment index for the environmental performance of cities.
